As terrible as Coakley is doing, I'm not hearing enough of "Brown will kill Kennedy's dream. He will kill reform!"

1. That's because they already have shitty corporate mandated insurance.
They know what the country is in for.

8. Is there any truth to the meme that HCR will increase MA taxpayers cost
The MSM is saying that MA voters are against HCR because they already have health care reform on a state level and will wind up paying for HCR in other states if the federal system becomes law?

11. Well, they're wrong. OK? Just wrong. The actual real world...
...experience of the only people actually living with a must-purchase, must-issue system counts for nothing against the collective wisdom of DU.

5. You are right, but
voting Republican isn't going to make things better. I hope the independent voters see that.

7. you can work on something
the Dem health bill is not the end of the road - it can be worked on to get to single payer. The GOP on the other hand exits and privatizes EVERYTHING!
